Hey guys! I am not feeling well today. My body finally give in and hey cold virus had entered my system. I tried to prevent it from coming in but I am no superwoman now. I should not get sick because I am a mother and is working, blogging and selling. I hope this cold will just be cold and won't get to flu. I think the weather must do something about this and the stress of the birthday preparation we went through last week. How about you guys, are you feeling sick too?

I am from India and here the temperature has suddenly fallen down due to heavy rain in our area and many other parts of the country.It's rainy season here and this is the season when people begin catching cold,fever and even flu.So far as I am concerned,I have not been vulnerable to all these problems.Fortunately I have a strong body with enough resistant force. I can understand your problem.You are a mother and so you can't afford to fall prey to cold or flu.Avoid getting exposed to cold weather.I hope,you will remain immune from cold,flu and all these sort of nasty things.

Hey i felt bad to hear about your condition. Even i got victimized due to cold and it was pathetic as i had severe running nose and sneezing. I felt it was due to the weather transition and i hope that you take very good care of yourself and take adequate rest at home.

Sometime, I feel the same way like you do. Whenever I have colds, I mix calamansi with honey. Teaspoons of honey and 4-6 calamansi. Then I drink it straight. I do this twice daily until my colds gone.

Ouch I almost caught flu last week because my sister got flu but then I drink a lot of water, eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and also eat hot soup then the flu is gone. I dont like to take medicine, so I prefer natural medication and have enough rest. The weather is a bit crazy lately, it is so cold in the morning but so hot at day time and raining sometime plus I have so many things to do this week I have to ride from my city to another city. Take rest and eat hot soup, hope it can cure your flu.

Half a month ago, I have got a cold. The feeling is terrible, the energy seemed go out of my body. Even walk made me feel tired. I can not take part in to the party and can not keep me awake in the daytime. I have slept in bed for several days and drink as much water as I can. Now I still left some unconfortable with me, but can work now.

Oh my. Were in the same situation. But right now i have cough and i'm 6 months pregnant! My husband told me to see my OB to ask for a medicine but i refuse to do so. I'm scared of taking any medicines since it might affect my baby. But maybe, if it gets worse i might to and ask for it too. As for now i'm sticking with water treatment, avoiding cold drinks, salty and oily foods. I hope we both can get well soon. =(

I am not currently sick but having cold would be one of the thing I mostly hate. Indeed, weather conditions really makes many people sick, the unpredictable and rapid changes of climate is hard to bear for our system. You should try to rest and drink lots of water to ease the suffering :).

Hi shylade, I'm feeling good, hope you too, and get well soon. I used to feel sick easily, especially flu. Although I tried hard to prevent it from coming, drink lot and lot of water, but still we can't help it. But now with a good supplement, and drink enough water everyday, I think my immune system is getting better.

Flu and colds have been knocking at my door for several days now. I did have feeling of sickness but I never thought of it. I am no super woman as well, but I just can't afford to be sick now. What I usually do on the onset of these feelings is to drink double water, expose myself to the public more, sunlight is best, and avoid being trapped indoors. It does help but when I really feel that they're close, I usually would just pop some vitamins and eat more fruit and drink milk. My brothers have been sick with the flu and colds the whole week. Even in my workplace somebody went in with a sore eye, and some with symptoms of colds and flu as well. But I am glad that I still don't have it. Just refrain from touching your face and wash your hands (with soap and water) more often that usual. Don't baby your condition. Ignore the sickness. Have a great MyLot experience ahead!

I got a flu last saturday now I feeling lot better because of the flu I didn't have a chance to go to work for a few days and I just stayed here at home. Better to take lots of water, eat lots of fruits and rest. It really hard to have a flu because you fel weak and difficult to breath. Now that I am fine maybe tomorrow will et my flu vaccine to prevent from getting flu again. Get well soon.

Hello Shylade, We couldn't really get away from being sick sometimes. Let's just all hope that it will fade away fast...like only for a day or two...or just a few hours. Anyways, it's good that I haven't had a flu or colds lately even though the weather is quite weird here in our place. Sometimes, its so sunny and in the afternoon, it will rain. But I am happy that even tnough we have that kind of weather still I haven't got sick...^^ Hope you are feeling better now or finally healed after 6 days... Happy Mylotting.

Hello shylade, I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Take some rest for now. Drink plenty of water. Have some chicken soup, which can do wonders. You are correct, the stress that you had from the past days had finally caught up with you. Also try having a massage once you have the free time to loosen the stress. We often tend to forget ourselves because of our many responsibilities. Get well soon!
